. a housing cyclone that hollowed out more homes that hurricane katrina and sandy combined. the very definition of disaster needs broadening. we need to recapture the initial horror created by those single natural disaster and put it toward the relief of our on going national disasters. the energy gathered by gale force winds has the power to focus our public attention. superstorm sandy may help the electorate focus in the few days that remain in the 2012 presidential campaign. our vote on tuesday will be for a disaster manager and chief taking charge of a country in an economic state of emergency, building a society that leaves all of us more prepared for disaster. at my table is ari melber, msnbc contributor. norry tan dan, kate dawson and david rodi, a reuters columnist and contributor for the atlantic. thank you all for being here. >> i want to start with you. the article, the piece you wrote was about the inequalities that have been revealed in the con te context of sandy. >> i am one of the privileged new yorkers. there has always been divisions in the city but this storm broug
. so huge. and to compare it to katrina, katrina lost more lives. we lost too many lives, but not close to katrina. but in other ways it's much more devastating than katrina. right now in new york 305,000 homes are seriously damaged or gone. kirsten showed the pictures of some of them that are just gone by fire because the water systems failed, and the wind -- then the electrical systems got shorted; fire, wind. and the, so 305,000 homes seriously damaged or gone. just in new york up to now, there are going to be more that we'll learn about because the flooding is still there in lots of the basements. these are low-lying houses. there were 214,000 total homes gone in katrina of the same level of damage. businesses, 265,000 -- this is just new york. bob will talk about, and frank talked about new jersey which has similar levels of damage. in katrina 18,000 businesses. because of the density of the population, it is a much greater economic impact on our region, of course, and on the nation. than otherwise. so despite all this pain we can't entirely fault those who came before us for build
business bureau. fraud was so rampant in the wake of hurricane katrina in 2005 the government created a disaster fraud team which is said to have prosecuted nearly 1,500 people involved with running scams related to katrina and rita. meanwhile, countless americans are opening their wallets to victims of the superstorm. about $11.4 million so far has been donated to the red cross, two days after the storm. that's more than the $8 million donated after hurricane isaac. a music telethon dedicated to sandy and led by bruce springsteen, bon jovi and billy joel will air on nbc tonight. climate change failed to become a major headline story in the presidential election... until now. in the aftermath of hurricane sandy, new york mayor michael bloomberg noted the summer drought, melting ice caps and rising temputures as reasons to take action on climate change. then on thursday in a stunning move, bloomberg endorsed president obama, citing his record on climate change issues such as raising fuel emissions standards. meanwhile, gop vice presidential candidate paul ryan suggests taking another

, some are now drawing comparisons between this superstorm and katrina. so just how do they measure up? cnn meteorologist severe weather expert chad myers is taking a closer look. he's joining us now. how do they measure up, chad? >> well, first of all, the storm surge with katrina was enormous. almost three times more of a wave or of a surge with katrina as bay st. louis was about 28 feet. manhattan island, downtown, the battery, had about 9.5 feet. haven't seen too many numbers higher than that. 9.5 feet moving into the city comparing to moving into the bay, obviously there's a town there and all the way do biloxi, it's the population density in new york city that is going to -- and in new jersey and connecticut, that is going to put this way up in the record books. katrina, $145 billion in damage. andrew, this is cost for adjusted inflation $43.5 billion. and looks like somewhere sandy will fall somewhere between katrina and into andrew. so probably number two on the scale for dollar damage. now, when it comes to deaths, it's disturbing, wolf, to see and hear how quickly the fatalit

. we had katrina years ago. there are things that will disrupt the economy. 9/11 was an extraordinary case. but we have a very resilient economy. we've had one for hundreds of years. and the fact that they can't get along for the month of january is not going to torpedo the economy. >> so i want to make clear, he wants to see a deal made. but he says, you have to be willing to go past december 31st. if you need to, you have to make every attempt to reach a deal. but he says, quote, don't roll over and give away the store. he sees the president in his second term being able to hold a very hard line. bottom line, you know where he stands on taxes. he wants them much higher. >> talking about taxes, how much higher? >> that's the question, getting specifics. i asked him that on capital gains taxes, money made off of investment, but also on income taxes for regular people. take a listen. >> are you saying there's no taxation level that's too high? whether it's capital gains or investments or income? >> we certainly prospered with capital gains rates, more than double what they are currentl

katrina, their next stop could be a used car lot. "if it was from new jersey and sold right after the storm, i'd walk away." damaged cars may be resold, cleaned up and title transfered. most states keep their own records of a vehicle'' history, but not all of them. "missouri can wipe clean a vehicle's history when title changes." so used car buyers are warned to look for clues, particularly exposure to salt water. "it'll wick its way up, evaporate, but the salt will remain and corrode the car." "there may be a smell of mold and maybe even twigs and leaves under the hood." the watchdog group consumers for auto reliability and safety suggests searching information on a car though this website: "vehicle history-dot-gov." it's required that all total loss vehicles are to be reported to this federal database within 30 days. some predict that increased demand for used cars in the storm's aftermath and the relatively low number of new cars sold during the recession may lead to a spike in late- model used car prices, a jump that could be seen all along the east coast. just one month after
's for fewer than katrina but still significant. because thousands of flood cars could end up on market and you'll know they're secret. in maryland, the law says dealers who sell more than 5 cars a year has to disclose flood damage. individual sellers don't have that same requirement. the feds use the national motor vehicle titling information system to track but he says not every state participates so scammers can wipe a car's past clean. but to uncover the imperfect past of a car takes some work. >> unfortunately it's extremely easy to clean up a flood damages car. >> reporter: his company's free flood reports may indicate whether a used car was water logged and could become a potential danger to you if you buy it. >> the worst this is it could affect the safety system of the car. the air bag system may not function. >> reporter: before buying any used car, you got to take it to a ride to a mechanic. bill taylor says the story of every sandy car can be uncovered if you look for red flags. to find the biggest one, just open the door and sniff. >> they can put perfume or cleans it all they wa
as katrina, which was obviously devastating to an entire region and probably greater in terms of its impact than the current storm, you did see it in the numbers during that one quarterback in 2005 but the rebound was extremely quick. so you can barely see the effect of the storm in gdp numbers after that. and the one nice thing about our economy is it does tend to be able to recover quite quickly. >> austan, what's your take? on top of everything you have this gas problem as well. everybody wanting gasoline and unable to get it. >> my mother-in-law is out in new jersey, she got her power back on thursday. i was happy that she was okay. i think just the way we do the numbers has got goofy implication that your house gets knocked down, you rebuild a new one, you're no better off than you were before but that counts as an increase to the gdp because they are counting the part you're doing right now, not what was already there. >> what about the infrastructure story, governor cuomo said when new york rebuilds, it will rebuild better. is this an opportunity to make significant changes to the in

, except look at the price tag of repairing things after stuff -- look at katrina, now sandy. sandy wasn't an especially big hurricane as hurricanes go. it just happened to get deflected ashore in an inopportune place. from a geologic standpoint, katrina was 2005. sandy's 2012. in the sense of deep time, that's like the wink of an eye, it's happening just like that. if these storms happen every five years, then every four years, it's going to be a very expensive and traumatic thing. that's in the developed world where we have the means to feed people on thanksgiving day. in the developing world it leads to horrible trauma. we have huge inefficiencies and there's going to be conflict over transportation and clean water and who gets the rights to live in the most desirable places. this could be a turning point. >> bill nye, the science guy, told me that the world can expect more superstorms like sandy. >>> a deadly fire rips through a clothing factory. 2,000 people were inside a nine-story building in a country where most clothing is exported to the u.s. what do you got? restrained driver
